Larger apex court bench should review Loya ruling: Congress

Without directly referring to the Supreme Court ruling in the Justice Loya case, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi targeted BJP president Amit Shah with this succinct remark: "the truth has its own way of catching up with people like him". The investigation was done professionally by the Nagpur Police and all the evidence was presented in court, he said. It has "left many questions unanswered", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.

The Supreme Court on Thursday expressed concern over the manner in which advocate Prashant Bhushan has acted with a "lack of objectivity" and his assertions have bordered on an attempt to "misrepresent the facts and mislead the court".

The judgement said there was "no reason to doubt the statements of sitting judges" and the intent of the petitioners had been to "malign the judiciary".

"He is the foremost cardiologist in the country and we also spoke to other cardiologists and they uniformly opined that the ECG and pathology report showed no signs of a heart attack", Bhushan said. The bench observed that the petitioners tried to scandalise the judiciary.

However, the court said that it was not initiating civil contempt against the petitioner for scandalising the judiciary. "And we will follow journalistically the qns [questions] that continue to puzzle the circumstances of Judge Loya's death", he said.

Loya, who was hearing the high-profile Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, had died of cardiac arrest in Nagpur on December 1, 2014 when he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleagues daughter.

"The Supreme Court has also cautioned against the misuse of courts in political tug-of-war", he added. He said, "The real face of Congress Party and Rahul Gandhi has been exposed".

January 12: SC terms "serious matter" the alleged mysterious death of Loya, seeks response from Maharashtra government. But to take a leap of reason, based on nothing else but political motive, and implicating BJP president Amit Shah as being behind Loya's "murder" is to leave the woodwork of the courts and enter the paperback of crime thrillers.
